Stopped by on June 11th, 2013 for a late breakfast, but after a quick scan of the menu, I settled on the 'Do Me an Ava.' Grilled pastrami, bacon, Swiss & Thousand Island on a hoagie roll. The Ava was dang tasty. It wasn't a deli style pastrami sandwich. The pastrami was crisped up on the grill with the bacon. The man running the grill is a beast. Imagine the Tasmanian Devil with a spatula. Whisking eggs, bending down to get stuff out of the lo-boy, slamming bread in and out of the little two slice toaster, jumping up to snatch to go containers off the top shelf. Fun to watch. As for Johny's it self, it's a small hole in the wall, in the best way. Nine stools at a counter and two tiny two seat tables. One guy running the register, another taking orders and getting drinks, the aforementioned demon on the grill and another cleaning up, and running supplies. They do a brisk take out business as well. All the guys are friendly, but it's not a place to linger. Eat and get out. All in all, a great, affordable place for a fast, made to order meal in the Flatiron neighborhood.

This is a great place when walking through the area. Food is great and cannot beat the pricing! gets crowded though, but really good for take out too!

I can't believe I never knew about this place before and I've worked in the neighborhood for 3+ years! I had an intense craving for chocolate chip pancakes (I'm 8 mos. pregnant!) and this was the only place nearby that served them. I missed Johny's at first - it really is a "hole in the wall." When I entered, I knew I was in the right place. It's old school and totally awesome - classic diner with a long counter and stools. The kind of place that regulars go. My pancake order came up super fast. Pancakes, coffee & OJ was just under $8. I think I'm going to make this a routine for the next few weeks! :D Love it!!

We chose this place on the back of reviews here and boy what a decision - we ate here on our second day and never went anywhere else for breakfast afterwards. Its a superb place for excellent food and Johny himself was really cool, makes you feel like a regular on your first visit. Would recommend this to anyone, very good value.

Where else can you get a complete breakfast in chelsea for $7? Not to mention the food is excellent. The people who work there are very very nice. The owner himself Johny is always in there and he makes everybody feel like a 10 year regular. The people behind the counter bust their butts on the grill , pouring coffee and still find time to sit down and have personable conversations with every guest. This is a place I plan on going to 3-5 times a week....because it won't put a strain on my budget! Just had the turkey burger today..was really out of this world and was only about $4..can't beat that anywhere let alone manhattan 5 Stars across the board!!!!

I love Johny's! I eat here at least once a week. My fave is the Pizza Floro. I've tried other things on the menu, and they're good, but the Floro is the best! And Johny is awesome. He knows all of his regulars and always has a smile.

I'm a huge fan of Johnny's. It's great fresh food at a good price. And Johnny's awesome! I got at least once a week and will continue.
